ridge stacks, part rubble; timber-framed and weatherboarded with corrugated
metal roof. Hall and cross-wing plan; hall part of four cruck-framed bays

situated at the west end and is not in use at present. Single storey and
attic with dormers. Framing: not visible externally, South front elevation:
windows have timber lintels. There are two 3-light casements and a 2-light
casement on the ground floor, two gabled dormers with 3-light casements and
a gabled porch on timber posts with a partly-glazed door within. The cross-

The former hall has an inserted C17 ceiling divided into six compartments
by stop-chamfered beams. The cross-wing retains much of its medieval roof
although it has been raised on the west side. It has three main moulded
arch-braced collar trusses, two subsidiary collar and tie-beam trusses with
raking struts, two tiers of cusped wind-braces, and two tiers of purlins.
